Fairfield Museum offers camps for kids

Fairfield Museum has planned an educational camp season this summer with more creative and comprehensive programs than ever before to inspire children ages 4 to 12.

Weekly sessions are designed for children to learn and appreciate the arts, history and culture through interactive activities. Inquiry and discovery are encouraged through the exploration of exhibits, artifacts and historic sites against the backdrop of the Ogden House and Fairfield Museum.

Registration is underway now for the camp sessions, and space generally fills quickly. Camps will be led by professional museum educators and teachers. Each day provides a balance between hands-on projects, games, engaging activities and the flexibility to cater to the group’s interests.

• Preschool Camp: Journey Around the World — July 8 through 12 and July 15 through 19, 9 a.m. to noon, ages 4 to 6. Each session is $150 for members, $165 for non-members. For each week-long session, children will be immersed daily in a different culture; session 1 — travel to the western United States, Japan, Zambia, Antarctica and Scandinavia; session 2 — travel to the Northeastern United States, Australia, France, Guatemala and Togo.

• Art in the Gardens — July 9 through 11, 1 to 3:30 p.m., ages 8 to 12. Cost is $100 for members, $125 for non-members; meets at the Fairfield Museum.
